How to distinguish the difference between natural stone and artificial stone?
The Introduction of Two Kinds of Stone Materials:
The artificial stone is made of unsaturated polyester resin as a binder, mixed with natural marble or inorganic powder such as calcite, dolomite, silica sand, glass powder, and appropriate amount of flame retardant, color, etc. by vibration compression, extrusion, etc. .
Compared with natural stone, artificial stone has the advantages of bright color, high smoothness, uniform color, good pressure and wear resistance, good toughness, compact structure, strong and durable, low specific gravity, no water absorption, no erosion, no weathering, small color difference, no fading, low radioactivity. It has the advantages of comprehensive utilization of resources, has an inestimable role in environmental protection and energy conservation, and is also a true green building material. It has become the preferred finishing material for modern architecture.
Natural stone refers to sedimentary or metamorphic carbonate rock, including marble, dolomite, limestone, sandstone, shale and slate. For example, the famous Chinese white marble is the dolomite produced by Fangshan in Beijing, the marble in Yunnan is the marble in Dali County, and the famous Dandong green is the serpentine petrosilicate. Similarly, as various types of magmatic rocks for stone mining, such as granite, andesite, diabase, chlorite, gneiss, etc., it is called granite. At You Fine Art Sculpture, we would use different kinds of natural stone materials to make outdoor water fountains, stone marble gazebos.
The Difference Between Natural Stone and Artificial Stone:
1. The density of natural marble is different from that of ceramic tiles.
2. Natural stone has the characteristics of high strength, good wear resistance, corrosion resistance and low water absorption.
3. Artificial stone has a pattern of natural stone, high strength, no pollution, the quality is slightly worse than natural stone. The stone is easy to process, well formed and can be processed into geometric shapes, countertops, etc. The processing steps include rough grinding, fine grinding, fine grinding, polishing, waxing, and the like.
